Jennifer Giannou MooreIt was one of the best PD's I've had as a science educator, because this is what I've been wanting to do with my students, but didn't know how to approach it, especially while teaching content. - Jennifer Giannou-Moore, Austin High School



HRI teachers participate in a summer professional training at The University of Texas at Austin.
